Youth Hostel


CITY MEETS BEACH  Can't decide between city or beach? No worries! Kiel offers both. The beautiful capital is built around the Baltic Sea, giving you the best of both worlds. You can enjoy city life and chill out at the beach all in one go. In the summer, take a dip at one of the numerous beaches, while kids can have a blast at the seal pool by the fjord. Adults can enjoy a leisurely stroll in the maritime pedestrian zone for some shopping.

SEMINARS  for 10 to 250 people are bookable in 9 different rooms with stunning views of the Kiel Fjord at the Kiel Youth Hostel. It's only a 700m walk from the train station to the hostel, making it super convenient for you to get there.

YOUR HOSTS  are hostel manager Svenja Pointmayer and her team. They know Kiel like the back of their hands and will recommend the best highlights for you to see.

YOUR PROGRAM  high ropes course, stand-up paddleboarding on the fjord, surf taster courses, planetarium "Mediendom", shopping tour in the city.
